There's a lot of family coming to my house tomorrow so it doesn't look like I'll venture out there.

The RTV on the nut worked, 100% dry when I finished with it, took a coolant line loose and let it idle and pumped out the excess oil, easy enough, no drain on the pan.

It's not new, just a variation, you can lose money on all kinds of things. I usually catch it in the ad but occasionally I don't until the return email comes.

My Blazer has been running for years with never more than 1/4 tank, recently I filled it op, drove until it was about 1/8 tank decided to go fill it again, made it about a mile down the road and ran out of gas, never ran out before reading 1/8 tank, things changed. I have installed an electric pump on the Blazer with a pressure gauge by the carb, easy to tell it's out of gas.

I am a wimpy guy, I wear gloves as often as I can, lots easier to keep my hands clean and I really hate cuts.

I kind of like the noise of the pump, if I haven't driven the car lately you can hear the pump change tones after the bowls are full, time to start. If you listen for it over the engine you can hear it but it's not bad, don't think I can hear it over the road noise while driving.

I've always thought this would be a great event to add to the Corvair shows.

I wonder how you bid on the wrong car? Might have thought he was buying the next car in line, maybe not even a Corvair.

OK I got a new seal off eBay, searched base on a number I found stamped on the old seal, found one listed, it looks great, very sturdy double lip seal, installed easily, drive shaft was a bit of a challenge to reinstall, for some reason it didn't want to get short enough but went in with some light hammer action. Seeing as about five quarts transmission fluid came out of it I was guessing that mu

Will spraying starting fluid to see if it fires work for checking for fuel?

That'actually a great idea build it out of good material and a bit taller so it'll actually keep drinks from turning over. I like it.

Would it work having it the day before one of the bigger shows? Could also rotate around to different parts of the country. Might be easier that way, just suggesting an idea.

With my front discs I was sold a kit that contained the parts that are hard to get with a parts list for the rest. Tony sold me a plate that he developed that holds a standard caliper and uses discs that are shelf items at FLAPS everywhere. So these parts are factory tested and proved, the bracket is only attaching them to the car. I originally planned to install a dual master but I like the perf

A few months ago I stopped at a Wendy's. The computer system was out completely. They were running the store adding up the prices on paper and dealing cash only, apologized for taking too long but I told them they were fantastic.

That's the best looking front wheel drive car I've ever seen. I understand the reason for changing the dash but I like the look of the 60's dash much better. And I too not a FWD fan but I'd take it in a minute.

It's my fault, don't think I bought anything there since the 80s. I remember when Walmart and Kmart were rivals, you could go to Walmart and buy most everything you needed, they had everything but if you went to Kmart they only had popular stuff and usually had to go to Walmart for the rest of what you needed so started going to Walmart first. Now that Walmart killed Kmart they only sell the po

Put a firewall in front of the engine insulate it well, put air conditioning in the front and the rear of the van becomes the engine bay. I wonder what kind of rear end is in there and if it can handle that big block. That could be a tire smoking demon. Someone needs to do it.

We'll be doing a cruise out of Honolulu in a few months. We'll be in Honolulu for two days, have a 12 hour stop at Kailua Kona and have two days at Lahaina on Maui. Looking for must do recommendations from those in the know. We'll have a car in Honolulu, haven't decided yet for Lahaina. Thanks all.

Nope drive shaft doesn't slide out. Drive shaft bolts to a flange at transfer case and u-joint at front differential, the drive shaft is two piece with a slip joint. The flange on the transfer case has a nut holding it to the output shaft, got it off with a 1-1/8 socket and impact then the flange/yoke slipped off the output shaft with some hammer tapping. I got the old seal out now I'll go to loo

I knew someone that installed power windows many years ago, adapted parts from a donor vehicle, I never asked which kind and he's no longer with us now. His grandson now has the car and has moved away to serve in the military.

My 2002 Tahoe is Flex Fuel, think that's E85, never tried it though. The tuner crowd are always trying to find the stations selling the highest ratio of alcohol, even have test kits to figure it out, apparently rarely rises above mid 70% range.

Car looks pretty good, maybe not $15K but surely 8-10. The thought of a dummy turbo for my Spyder has crossed my mind mostly for the car shows and non-corvair crowd, doubt I'll ever do it, might turbo the 110 if I put the 4 speed back in.

That's interesting but I'm kind of a naysayer too. I looked it up and car ac is pretty big, cars have a lot of windows, not much insulation and a giant heat source, mostly in the front, but better cars have the heat source in the back, engine. A bit of electrical theory, a small home window unit 6000 BTU operates on 120 volts and pulls about 12 amps, flip it around and 12 volts of car power needs

I agree buying the best car you can afford is the way to go. I have a Monza with a 140 and an automatic, with only 2 gears it's not quick but I don't think it ever quits pulling, easily outlasts my willingness to leave the pedal down. I've had it about 15 years, did one rebuild on the carbs a couple years ago, it has always been dependable and runs excellent. I put disc brakes on the front and I

Mine is painted a Saturn color that I picked at the paint shop, almost the same. If my black interior wasn't in such good shape I'd be wanting to change it to that color, like it.
